RSML The language of root architecture

With several of the main actors in root system measurement and analysis, we have develop the RSML file format. It allows to store 2D or 3D image metadata, plant and root properties and geometries, continuous functions along individual root paths and a suite of annotations at the image, plant or root scales, at one or several time points. The plant ontologies are used to describe botanical entities that are relevant at the scale of root system architecture.

Rhizoscan High-throughput Root System Architecture extraciton from images

The RhizoScan is a project, founded by Rhizopolis and Numev, to develop image and graph analysis technologies to automatically process image of root systems and extract their architecture.

See the RhizoScan python package.

Ph.D at Evasion, INRIA September 2005 to December 2008

I have done a PhD at Evasion, INRIA under the supervision of Lionel Reveret.
I studied methods to generate the motion for virtual plants. Two main approaches have been explored:

  1. Acquisition and reproduction of real motion from videos – project page
  2. Real-time simulation of the tree response to wind load  – project page
